The Red Badge of CourageBook - 1983
First published in 1895, America's greatest novelnbsp;nbsp;of the Civil War was written before 21-year-oldnbsp;nbsp;Stephen Crane had "smelled even the powder of anbsp;nbsp;sham battle." But this powerful psychologicalnbsp;nbsp;study of a young soldier's struggle with thenbsp;nbsp;horrors, both within and without, that war strikes thenbsp;nbsp;reader with its undeniable realism and with itsnbsp;nbsp;masterful descriptions of the moment-by-moment riotnbsp;nbsp;of emotions felt by me under fire. Ernestnbsp;nbsp;Hemingway called the novel an American classic, andnbsp;nbsp;Crane's genius is as much apparent in his sharp,nbsp;nbsp;colorful prose as in his ironic portrayal of an episodenbsp;nbsp;of war so intense, so immediate, so real that thenbsp;nbsp;terror of battle becomes our own ... in anbsp;nbsp;masterpiece so unique that many believe modern Americannbsp;nbsp;fiction began with Stephen Crane.

"The cold passed reluctantly from the earth, and the retiring fogs revealed an army stretched out on the hills, resting."
